Austin, Texas – September 17, 2013 – Home security company Protect America, Inc. is proud to have been represented by employees participating in the Run With The Heroes 5K event in Austin, Texas on Sunday, September 15th. The event honors fallen emergency services heroes and shows support for their families. Run With The Heroes also donates its proceeds to Special Olympics Texas' athletes.

"There was a great energy in the crowd," said Protect America Project Manager Melanie Gonzalez. "It truly felt like a community gathering together for a larger purpose. This was the first 5K that I’ve done where it wasn’t about me, knowing that we were there to support the first responders made it feel like we were doing something more than just competing."

The company's internal culture group, named 2B Positive, is uncompromising in fostering growth and character in Protect America staff. 2B Positive engages employees to participate in a multitude of internal and external experiences such as cooking contests, volunteering, video game tournaments, movie days, and athletic events.

Run With The Heroes 5K is a race with a purpose. The event raises awareness of the sacrifice those in emergency services and their families make. "I’m sure it is a stressful job. Being able to meet some of them certainly made me appreciate them more," Said Gonzalez. "I couldn’t imagine doing what they do and I’m so thankful that they're around when we need them."
